MAN WHO SPOKE SNAKISH

The book edges have been trimmed as deckle edge paper!

A bestseller in the author s native country of Estonia, where the book is so well known that a popular board game has been created based on it, "The Man Who Spoke Snakish" is the imaginative and moving story of a boy who is tasked with preserving ancient traditions in the face of modernity. Set in a fantastical version of medieval Estonia, "The Man Who Spoke Snakish" follows a young boy, Leemet, who lives with his hunter-gatherer family in the forest and is the last speaker of the ancient tongue of snakish, a language that allows its speakers to command all animals. But the forest is gradually emptying as more and more people leave to settle in villages, where they break their backs tilling the land to grow wheat for their bread (which Leemet has been told tastes horrible) and where they pray to a god very different from the spirits worshipped in the forest s sacred grove.

With lothario bears who wordlessly seduce women, a giant louse with a penchant for swimming, a legendary flying frog, and a young charismatic viper named Ints, "The Man Who Spoke Snakish" is a totally inventive novel.
